If you are thinking about losing a few pounds or are even a hard-core fitness enthusiast, trampolines are great. However, you might not have either the funds or the space to invest in a larger, outdoor model. So what do you do, Take up (urgh!) jogging? Fear not, what about having a look at a mini trampoline?
The first thing that comes to mind for many people when they think ‘mini’ is one of the toy trampolines that you might buy for a toddler. Whilst these can be great, they clearly aren’t meant for adults and even less for an adult who is intending to use it to work out! Smaller exercise trampolines are what you should be looking at. These are made for indoor use and specifically for fitness. If you pick the right model, you should have absolutely no problems working hard and getting some great results.
So just what can you do with this get in shape? Pretty much anything you want! A couple of things to bear in mind before getting started. The aim here isn’t to bounce as high as possible. If you set this up in your living room (as many people do), think about low ceilings, ceiling fans or furniture that may be nearby. Give yourself plenty of space (at least 6 feet all round.) Your aim is to work hard for an extended period of time, not to smash through the floor or ceiling!
Exercising with a trampoline offers you an energetic and fun way of shedding that excess weight in the minimum time possible. Due to the enjoyable nature of the physical activities involved, you can improve your mental health by becoming happier, livelier, and more confident about yourself.
Just like most physical activities, when done consistently, exercising on a trampoline improves your cardiovascular health. More importantly, you can increase your bone density since the activities require you to work against gravity, allowing your bones to grow stronger and denser. All these benefits come with exercising on a trampoline, helping you stay fit and thus lead a healthier lifestyle.
